One of the joys of living in Chicago is having the chance to watch the local Fox affiliate's delightful 9:00 newscast. My favorite moment from the show came during my first year in Chicago, when the program gave viewers the chance to call in and take part in a poll about whether Jesus should be cloned. (Their answer: no.) More recently, one of the anchors admitted--following a story about the so-called "Seussentennial"--that she could name only two books by Dr. Seuss. Even then, I'm not sure that she deserves credit for both of her answers, since she could only come up with "The Grinch" (rather than "How the Grinch Saved Christmas") because of the recent Jim Carrey movie.
Something tells me that Fox News Chicago's anchors wouldn't do very well on this Dr. Seuss quiz, brought to us by The Guardian. I answered 8 out of 10 questions correctly (in part by guessing that Seuss's name was really pronounced like "ZOYCE"), and I'm embarrassed to have done better on this quiz than on past Guardian quizzes on Orwell and Shakespeare. At least my Yertle the Turtle knowledge has finally been put to good use...Posted by Ed at March 19, 2004 03:51 PM
